7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County will hold a free "Safe at Home" Repair Clinic on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 from 7:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. at the Quakertown Library. Many homes were not designed to accommodate the needs of older adults or people with disabilities and this program helps them age in place safely.

Habitat's Home Repair program does interior and exterior repairs for low-income homeowners to make the home safe and accessible, and to preserve the home. Its "Safe at Home" Repair Clinic will focus on modifications that help make a home a good fit for its occupants regardless of age or disability.

The clinic will be presented by Karen Reever, manager of Habitat's Home Repair program; Monique Chabot, occupational therapy professor from Jefferson University; and Patricia Nunan, president of Lifestyles Design in Perkiomenville. All bring a wealth of expertise. Plus, Monique is a Certified Living in Place Practitioner. Pat is a universal design expert. Both are Certified Aging-in-Place specialists.
Presenters will describe typical repairs and modifications that can be made in the home and demonstrate common repairs and modifications most frequently needed by older/disabled homeowners, e.g. grab bars, railings, improved task lighting, bathroom modifications.

"We encourage homeowners, families, home repairers, interior designers, and anyone involved in home care to attend the repair clinic and learn more about the accessibility modifications that are key to successfully aging in place and maintaining independence," says Karen Reever. "Habitat's intent is to partner with low-income homeowners to promote accessibility and help prevent accidents. We keep repairs affordable with homeowners paying only a portion of the repair costs based on their income."

 

The free clinic will be held at the Quakertown Library, 401 W Mill St, Quakertown, PA 18951 on June 6th from 7-8:30 p.m. To register for the clinic, contact Karen Reever, 215-822-2812, x304 or info@habitatbucks.org.

Habitat's "Safe at Home" program includes home modifications, such as:

Handicap-accessible ramps, railings or walkways.
Grab bars, railings, reduced tripping hazards.
Improved lighting and access to outlets & switches.
Minor bath and kitchen modifications.
